My soul is dark - Oh! quickly string
The harp I yet can brook to hear;
And let thy gentle fingers fling

That sound shall charm it forth again:
If in these eyes there lurk a tear,
'Twill flow, and cease to burn my brain.
But bid the strain be wild and deep,
Nor let thy notes of joy be first:

but in the guise it wears when life has just
departed; when a young and gentle spirit has, but
an instant, fled to Heaven, and the gross air of the
world has not had time to breathe upon the
changing dust it hallowed.”
1870s – “An artistic movement intended to
capture the first fleeting impression made by
an object on the viewer’s eye.”
Claude Monet
Vincent van Gogh (“postimpressionist”)
